  • Smart and Scalable Solutions

    Rev's dedicated academic transcription team partners with renowned universities and academic institutions by providing the best transcription and voice-recording platform to students, professors, and other experts. With Rev, researchers can comfortably collect large field samples of voice data. Rev's responsive team will tackle transcription projects normally considered insurmountable due to time and cost constraints.

    Rev does not limit your academic research voice recordings to a single transcriptionist. A solo can hinder the speed and efficiency of a large project, resulting in outdated findings. When you submit raw audio files to Rev, we deliver results quickly by engaging a full team of academic research transcriptionists who are trained to adhere to the highest standards of accuracy and consistency.

  • Affordability Aligned to Academic Budgets

    Rev is an affordable and scalable way to quickly transcribe research interviews, focus groups, social interactions, and anthropological audio files commonly used by researchers and students engaged in research projects, thesis creation and doctoral dissertations.

    Rev's simple pricing model, with no extra charges for additional participants and voices, allows academic researchers to create accurate project budgets. In addition to our flat rate, we charge a very affordable fee (25 cents per audio minute) for upgrading to a fully verbatim transcription, capturing linguistic nuances not normally reported on standard transcriptions. Mindful of the bureaucratic challenges associated with research expenditures, Rev offers two simple billing paths, allowing our customers (1) to pay online on a per-project basis or (2) be enrolled in a monthly billing program for larger-scale projects.

  • Accuracy and Access

    Our professional transcriptionists understand the unique needs of academia and the challenges of field research. From accent variations to linguistic nuances to background noise pollution, our transcriptionists can handle it all with a 99% accuracy rate.

    Accurate research transcriptions support important studies by natural and physical science experts and social scientists who seek to capture and analyze qualitative data such as group behaviors, cultural trends, consumer responses, demand cycles, folklore, and oral histories. You can rely on Rev's team of professional transcriptionists to deliver data in repository-friendly and analysis-friendly formats.
